Border Patrol apprehends two convicted sex offenders in less than two hours

Earlier this week, Border Patrol agents near Rio Grande, Texas, apprehended two migrant sex offenders in less than two hours.

Agents encountered a previously deported Guatemalan national attempting to cross the border with a larger group of migrants, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement.

When the agents checked the man’s records, they found he was a registered sex offender, arrested in 2019 for lewd or lascivious acts with a minor under the age of 14. Earlier this year, he was convicted and sentenced to 180 days in jail and five years of probation. He currently has an active warrant in California.

In Brownsville about an hour later, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers requested help from agents after a suspect fled during a traffic stop. Border Patrol apprehended the suspect and took him into custody. They discovered that the Mexican national was convicted for sexually assaulting a 21-year-old in 2011, and he received a six-year sentence and was deported earlier this year.

Report: border agents engaged in ‘shocking abuses’ against asylum seekers

Human Rights Watch invoked the Freedom of Information act to obtain a trove of documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) — uncovering shocking instances of sexual and physical abuse of asylum seekers at the hands of border officials.

After a six-year legal battle, the human rights group uncovered over 160 cases of misconduct and abuse by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the US Border Patrol.

The documents span from 2016 to 2021 and detail instances including child sexual assault, enforced hunger, and brutal conditions.

Human Rights Watch said the files “paint a picture of DHS as an agency that appears to have normalized shocking abuses at the US border. The US should take urgent and sustained action to stop such abuses.”

Texas migrant numbers ‘out of control’

In Del Rio, Texas, the number of migrants waiting under the International Bridge doubled to over 8,000 in a single day. Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the “out of control” situation, sources confirm.

Video footage shows the staggering number of people waiting under the bridge. On Wednesday, the number totaled around 4,000, but it spiked to over 8,200 by Thursday morning.

According to law enforcement, the majority of the migrants are Haitian, and more are arriving by the minute.

The situation marks the latest in a series of border pandemonium during the Biden administration. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said over 208,000 migrant encounters occurred in August, marking a 317% increase from August 2020.

The White House previously assigned blame to the Trump administration for limiting legal pathways to asylum. Meanwhile, the GOP blames the Biden administration’s rollback of Trump-era immigration policies.
